One of Warren County’s biggest tourism draws is about to kick off 2016 in style with two concerts this Saturday.
The Bluegrass Underground concert series makes its return to Cumberland Caverns with performances by two bands, The Americans and The Secret Sisters. The show begins at 1 p.m. and tickets are still available at bluegrassunderground.com.
The Americans is a Los Angeles-based band known for its rock ‘n roll with deep roots in traditional American music. The band has performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and twice joined Grammy and Oscar winner Ryan Bingham on national tours.
The Americans even played the first dance at Reese Witherspoon’s wedding, and has backed up Nick Cave, Tim Robbins, and Lucinda Williams.
The Americans consists of Patrick Ferris on vocals and guitar, Zac Sokolow on guitar and banjo, Jake Faulkner on bass, and Tim Carr on drums.
The Americans appear throughout “American Epic,” a four-hour primetime PBS / BBC special produced by Jack White, Robert Redford, and T Bone Burnett, featuring Nas, Elton John, Alabama Shakes, and Willie Nelson. The special is set to be released this spring.
